Wj Another Suspesion Question!

so if i had a rustys or iro 6.5" lift. it does not matter witch it is.
and instead of putting the top Y link, could i just buy the parts and make it a 4 link? clayton has the axle bracket and the arms, and im assuming the arms just bolt into where the Y link arms bolt into anyways?

and what is the exact difference of the 3 link vs. 4 link?

Clayton's mounts to brackets on the subframe which is also supplies.

In short, no you can't do what you want.

No vendor currently offers a wj 3 link. They are all radius arm designs. Stock is a 4 link setup. Custom is the way to go for a 3 lnk up front. Do it - superior to the radius design.

I'm talking about the back not the front.

The rear is commonly referred to as an a-arm, not a y-link, which is what IRO commonly refers to its radius arm design as.
